If you’re interested in yet another small mod for your jailbroken handset’s Home Screen that will enhance the aesthetic of your app icons, then you might come to appreciate a new and free jailbreak tweak release called dock label by iOS developer ElioFegh.
Once installed, dock label does precisely what it sounds like — it adds labels to the app icons on your Home Screen Dock.
Apple seems to avoid using app icon labels on the Dock because these are your ‘favorite’ apps that you selected and wouldn’t likely confuse with other apps, but for the sake of consistency, we can see why some users may still want those app icons labeled just like the rest of the icons on their Home Screens.
The developer states that they created dock label in response to a /r/jailbreak request, and in our eyes, that’s a beautiful thing because it shows that developers are out there making jailbreakers’ dreams come true.
If you’re interested in giving dock label a try on your device, then you can download it for free from ElioFegh’s personal repository via your favorite package manager app. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS & iPadOS 13 and 14 devices and doesn’t have any options to configure.
If you’re not already taking full advantage of ElioFegh’s personal repository, then you can add it to your package manager app of choice by using the URL that we’ve embedded below:
